Bolga Shopper Collection

Bolga Shopper Collection


The brightly coloured stripes of the Bolga Shopper belie the craftsmanship that is required to weave these baskets. Made from elephant grass in Ghana, the process requires individual lengths of grass straw to be divided in two, dampened and rolled together by hand over a rubber sandal tied to the weaver’s thigh. Once soft, the fibres are unrolled again and dyed before the baskets can be woven. Your weekly vegetable shop will never look more glamorous than when loaded into these delightful baskets.

Maker and Material: Handmade in Ghana from elephant grass. Sourced from Design Afrika.
